Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Adapters - Hitch Extender - C45795 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at part number C45795, this is the Curt Hitch Extender for two inch trailer hitches. It's going to extend your trailer hitch receiver opening out from the rear of your vehicle to help avoid obstacles so that way you can get some extra clearance for your trailer if you have some mounted accessories that you need to clear. You could use this to mount your bike rack or your cargo carrier without having to remove your rear mounted spare tire. This unit is going to be constructed of durable steel. It's got the solid shank here on the back side, it's not hollow. It's also going to have a black powder coat finish so it's going to do a really good job at resisting rust and corrosion.

This portion is going to be the portion that slides into your two inch by two inch hitch. You're going to align it up with the pin holes in your hitch and secure it with a hitch pin and clip or a clip lock, those items are sold separately. It can be found right here at Etrailer.com. It's going to be a standard 5/8th inch pin hole. Once you have that secured, you're accessory or whatever it is would go into the two inch by two inch receiver opening. It's got the collar around it and it's going to have your standard 5/8th inch pin hole.

Again, you'll need to secure that with a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock, whatever it is you're putting in to the opening. Now with the unit, we're going to have a maximum gross trailer weight of 3500 pounds, maximum tongue weight of 350 pounds and please note that using an extension will reduce your hitch's weight capacity by 50 percent. We're going to go over a few measurements . The distance that we have from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the receiver pin hole, this is going to be how far it's going to move out from our vehicle, that's going to give us a measurement of about 14 inches. The exact measurement is going to be 13 and 13/16ths of an inch. The over all length measuring from edge to edge, that's going to give us a measurement of 19 and 3/8ths of an inch.

That's going to do it for today's look at part number C45795.

Works great and reasonably priced. etrailer Customer Service is absolutely the very best. My first shipment arrived missing the hitch extension. Customer Service quickly responded to my communications and shipped a replacement the same day. As you can see from the photo the hitch extender is perfect for my Polaris Ranger and allows me to use my small lawn n yard implements. I highly recommend etrailer. 643282

The weld looks solid, but needs ground down, or the hole drilled in a different location. The weld prevented the holes to line up. I had to go get a grade 5 1/2" bolt to secure it in place, rather than a hitch pin. 612657

I order a 14" steel (2" type) hitch extension and I received a heavy steel, well-made extension; as advertised. eTrailer found that upgraded faster shipping was available at the same price as regular slower shipping, so they upgraded me. Very nice service! 582936

Curt’s brand, only the best! USA made, The shaft that goes into the hitch is solid steel not the hollow China crap. I used the hitch extension to make a rear hitch step 12” wide by 38” long for my ford van. I strap my kayaks on top for when we go camping this step just gives me that need height to get them in the kayak saddles before I climb on top to tie them down. I put two kayaks on top so the 38” across comes in handy. With my front hitch I can also put it in the front when I’m working on my van or truck to give me that extra hieght - I’m 6’ and I can’t reach a lot of stuff, even cleaning the windshield. 566597

Ask the Experts about this Curt Hitch Adapters
Do you have a question about this Hitch Adapter?


  • Why Do Hitch Extenders Reduce Hitch Capacity
  • Hitch extenders like the Kuat # HL20B and similar items # C45791, # C45795 and # HE12 do give you more clearance to install a hitch accessory like the SportRack Ridge Swing 4 Bike Rack # SR2415 but the trouble is these extenders also reduce the hitch's tongue weight (TW) capacity by 50-percent. All adapters like these push the actual weight of the loaded bike rack further away from the hitch and this means the rack's weight will put more stress on the hitch. The extra connection point...

  • Hitch Extender For Adding Enough Space Between Trailer and SUV to Open Rear Hatch
  • You can do that if you wish, but be aware that using an extension lowers the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. The further the load gets extended away from the hitch, the more leverage is applied. This leverage can damage the hitch or cause it or its attachment points to the vehicle to fail. If you can get by with the reduced capacity, I'd recommend the 12 inch # MT70024, the 14 inch # C45795 or the 18 inch # HE18. An extra long ball mount might be a good alternative. If you click...

  • Recommended Hitch Extender For 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited To Allow Kuat NV To Clear Spare Tire
  • For your Kuat NV # NV22G and your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, I recommend the Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches - 14" Long # C45795. This will allow your bike rack to clear your spare tire when folded up, but you will want to note that using a hitch adapter like this will reduce your hitch's tongue weight capacity by 50 percent.

  • Compatibility of Hitch Extender with Adjustable Ball Mount with a Rise
  • A ball mount like the 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Steel Balls # LTB4-2 will allow you to use the hitch ball rise position with the extender unless there is a noted restriction on your extension. Most extenders do not have that restriction. For instance, the Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches - 14" Long # C45795 has restrictions of a maximum tongue weight of 350 lbs and maximum towing of 3,500 lbs. You will also want to recognize that the use of an extension will reduce...

  • Thule T2 Bike Rack Cant Fold Up and Wobbles when Used in Invisi-Hitch on 2015 Subaru Outback
  • So you are using an adapter like # 28351 on the Invisi-Hitch installed on your 2015 Subaru Outback. The connection between the hitch and adapter is where you would need the anti-rattle device, right? Since the adapter shank is solid the pest solution is the Boone anti-rattle device # 93347. Given the vertical receiver on the hitch it may be difficult to get this device in place. The absolute best solution is to replace the hitch which may seem like an unnecessary expense until you consider...

  • Hitch Extender Availability To Allow Folding Carrier to Fold Up
  • The shortest hitch extender we offer is the part # C45791 which will give you an additional 8 inches of extension. Without knowing more details about your setup it's hard to say for sure if that would give you enough clearance but I would be wiling to be it is if what you have now almost would fold up. You should note that when you use an extension like this you end up cutting the capacity of the hitch it is used on in half. To prevent movement of this extension in the hitch you would...

  • How to Determine Correct Hitch Extender for Bike Rack on Jeep Wrangler with Rear Spare Tire
  • To determine the length you need measure from the hitch pin hole on your Jeep's trailer hitch receiver out to the edge of the spare tire. Then add an inch or so to give you a little space. Some extenders are only designed to be used to flat tow a vehicle and not to hold any tongue weight so make sure you choose an extender that is designed for carrying accessories since you're going to use it for a bike rack. Part # C45795 is a great 14 inch option. 37 inch tires are normally 12 or...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2007 Ford E-450 Chassis on Old U-Haul Truck
  • Since the frame ends so far short of the bumper, I recommend the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Service Body Trailer Hitch Receiver - Weld On - Class V - 2" # 41990-07. Then you will need to use a hitch extender like # C45795 which will reduce your overall towing capacity to 3,500 lbs and 350 lbs tongue weight but you will still be able to tow any trailer within that range.
